Full fishing on Amelia Island


The backwater is great for Red fish  on light tackle. The Jack Carville are running with the mullet run. The trout are moving in the rivers with the cooler water temperature and are biting jigs and doing well on the fly rod too.

Jetty the Bull reds are still chewing and are awesome on light tackle. The sheepsheads are coming in the rivers and at the jetty’s too.

Offshore the bottom fishing is great when the weather lets you go, the Seabass are in on the near shore reefs and the grouper are too. Lots of snapper around but you have to release them. We have half days available for the up coming holidays so call or email today to book your fishing Trip.

Spring Fishing on Amelia Island, FL

Early spring is great for Black Drum like the ones Chip and Drain are holding. Caught aboard The Wahoo with Capt. Billy on 3-20-2015. The black Drum will be running until late April and can get up to over 100lbs. The whiting are running and are great pan fish. The red bass are coming in with the Black Drum and are schooling up in groups of 20 in the bait pods. April and May the Cobia will be running in the pogy pods, as well, and are great for sight fishing. The next three months are the best to take a kid fishing so Quit Wishin Let’s go Fishin!!!20140528_100110Fernandina Beach-20120317-00111IMG-20120703-00350

Inshore Fishing is the Perfect Family Trip!

Wondering whether a chartered fishing trip would be a good activity for your family? There are several reasons we’re sure you and your family will love your time spent out on the water with our charter!

  • Unlike deep sea fishing, inshore fishing takes place in shallower waters, meaning your family won’t have to go too far out in the sea to experience the fun of a fishing charter. This is an especially good option for families with younger children.
  • An inshore fishing trip allows you to catch impressive fish! On our inshore trips, we’ve caught trout, bonnethead sharks, sheepshead, flounder, whiting, puppy drum, and bull redfish, to name a few.
  • When you’re on a chartered inshore fishing trip, you know you’re using the best equipment and fishing in the right spot. You won’t waste hours of your trip waiting to catch something – when you’re with an experienced guide, you’re sure to catch fish quickly. The entire family will find our inshore fishing trip to be an exciting experience.
